Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Bibliotheca architecture is breathtaking and there is a display showing old printing presses in the main library. We arrived at 17:01 and were told that the antiquities museum in the basement had just closed for the day and they weren’t letting more people in. Double check opening hours - the exhibits and collections close before the actual library.

    Nice to visit the icon of Alexandria.
    Good views of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Mostly neat and tidy, but some people were smoking in this historical monument.

    Interesting archeological site.
    Nice to see a part of ancient history in person.

    Few steps to go down, but easily manageable.

    Nice to see the process of mummification carved in stones.

    Visited it on the end of the day just before our trip back to Cairo. Well,the palace was closed already for visiting. Interesting gardens and quite a history.Built in 1892 and used for summer residence of King Farouk.
    Beautiful green gardens for summer relax.

    We stopped here to take pics only - did not get to do much exploring. But the road looked lovely! One side had shops/restaurants and the other had the Mediterranean Sea! One can also see the Citadel at Qaitbay in the distance!

    Would have loved to visit in the evening and walk around.

    This is the biggest site of ruins in the city. It's extensive and includes an open theater that is still used for concerts. There are ruins of shops and houses, including an area where some very good mosaics are no display. Also some monuments that have been extracted from the sea. Big area so you won't feel crowded.

    This museum has many artifacts but some of the disploys are in the dark basement which are difficult to see if there are more than a few people viewing. The scuptures discovered under water were fascinating.

    The monastery is located some distance from Alexandria and getting there was an adventure in itself Google Maps was surprisingly good).
    The site is of significant importance to Christians as it hosts the relics of St. Minas. The place was busy with local tour groups. There is no entrance fee and the grounds were decorated with beautiful paintings and mosaics. There are also vendor booths with both religious items and local foods.

    If you visit the Sarapeum, you will see Pompey's Pillar. If you visit Pompey's Pillar, you will be in the Sarapeum. It's pretty much all in the same location.

    This spot housed a large temple with views of land and sea. Eventually it was destroyed - some blame Roman soldiers, others blame a mob of Christians.
    Below there are catacombs but I never saw it. As you walk around the complex toward the pillar, there will be areas with ruins and relics to look at. It doesn't take much time at all to walk through the artifact garden. It's nice to walk through and take the time to look at the modern buildings creeping up around you.

    You don't really need a guided tour of this location, but a little bit of background information helps. It's a fast visit and won't take up much of your time.

    A part of a group of monasteries in Wadi Natrun, in the desert west to Delta, this monastery has a history originating in 4th century already. It is dedicated to St Bishuy, who is perhaps unknown in the West, but very popular in Egypt, where quite a few Copts bear this name.

    It is located not far from the road between Alexandria and Cairo.

    The monastery is surrounded by walls and houses several buildings, not only old ones, but also a big new church for the pilgrims as well as the tomb of a popular pope (patriarch) of the Copts, Shenuda III.

    Not only you don't pay to enter, but you can get a free simple meal of bread and broad bean, which is great.

    My visit to Egypt was truly a dream come true. I truly had the time of my life, and in fact I am planning to return next summer! From the moment we walked off of the plane in Cairo, we were taken care of. Yassar one of our guides and all of the drivers are very friendly and kind. Marwa, our first guide in Cairo is truly a fabulous woman. She was so much fun and very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. I really appreciate the fact that Marwa pointed out food that I could not eat due to allergies.I She also got us some Egyptian rice to take home. Definitely would recommend! I loved the Egyptian dinner and camel ride, as well as going to the Pyramids. Climbing up to the inside the Great Pyramid was incredible!

    Again after flying into Aswan, we were taken care of. Then we met Sam. I have to tell you that he is fabulous! We had so much fun with him. He really did cater to our every need. He is extremely knowledgeable and I loved how he would read us the hieroglyphics wherever we went. If we wanted to go back to ship a little early to rest (because of the extreme heat that week!) Sam adjusted the schedule. We discussed not going to Dendera but instead to see Deir El Medina, and Habu temple. I am so pleased Sam mentioned this because it was breathtaking!! Sam is the very best guide in Luxor and I would recommend him to everyone!
    We also did the three day Nile cruise with The Sonesta Moon Goddess. Beautiful Ship, food was good and staff was super friendly. (Definitely get the massage) Be warned though, the cruise really only sailed one day from Aswan to Luxor, the other two being docked in Aswan one day, and Luxor one day.
    Everywhere we went in Luxor was truly amazing. I am happy we paid extra in the Valley of the Kings for the three extra tombs, Tut, Ramses V,VI, and Seti I. I think the tombs were my favorite of the trip if I had to choose.
    The hotels we stayed at were great, Our stay in Giza was fabulous and the people super friendly. We stayed ( separate from tour ) at the Great Pyramid Inn.Staff was great and the rooms clean, the rooftop restaurant was awesome. etc. The Hilton in Luxor was the best! When we were in the restaurant for dinner, the chef came out of the kitchen and showed me the dishes that I could eat (again due to allergies). The hotel itself is beautiful, including the pool area (no time to enjoy), the staff very accommodating, and the jewelry store was great. I plan to stay there next year when I return, as Luxor is incredible. We also enjoyed the Karnak Temple Light show, it was fun.
    When we flew back into Cairo, we stayed at the Triumph Plaza. Very nice hotel, clean and friendly people. The one thing I didn’t like was the fact that we really didn’t have time to eat breakfast and I wanted to take a few croissants and coffee back up to the room so we could eat while getting ready for our next adventure. The staff there wouldn't even allow me to get a coffee to take up to our room, and told us that we had to use room service, of which we were charged extra for. Not a huge deal as the coffee was cheap, it was just irritating.
    The drivers including Hossam in Cairo and Ahmed in Luxor were great and the very best guides Marwa and Sam! My visit was incredible and life changing. I will return next year!
    This visit was amazing! The Egyptian people are gracious and friendly and at no time did I feel unsafe, and I was traveling with my sister in law. It is sad that due to the Gaza turmoil that this country's tourism is almost at a stand still. That said, we never had to wait in line anywhere!
    I would recommend this company to everyone!
